Kris Boyd predicts Alfredo Morelos Rangers end game as he delivers transfer 'flaw' claim
But Boyd has urged a note of caution and believes potential suitors will be weighing up the weaknesses in the 24-year-old's game.(Image: SNS Group)
Speaking to the Sky Sports Premiership podcast, he said: "I don't think Rangers would have brought in two strikers if they were to keep Morelos.
"To have four strikers to play that one role… it's not going to happen.

"We said last week Rangers had to get two strikers in, they've done that without even selling Alfredo Morelos, and I think towards the end of this week we'll see something agreed.
"The French window doesn't open until August 15, there's not much that can be announced before that, but it can all be agreed and tied up in place.(Image: Getty Images)
"When you look at it, your value is only what someone is prepared to pay for you. There's no doubt they've got a talented footballer there, but there is a lot of flaws to his game, and teams will look at that."
Boyd admits he was buoyed by his former club's ability to secure a pair of new arrivals as Gerrard looks to bolster his options.
And the 36-year-old reckons the skillset of Roofe and Itten will add a different dimension in the final third.
Roofe is someone who maybe Rangers have been missing, with his link-up play and eye for a goal, while Itten is the bigger player, 6ft 2in and a presence in the box.
